You put the winch on the wrong end.

It's not the rear that is too high it's the front. I need to put 2 winches on the front bumper to weigh it down.
Currie is going to get a nasty email from me.
I got 6.5 inches lift on the front, 3 in the rear, from a 4" lift. Go figure.

If you ask nicely they will probably be very helpful in sorting out the problem. First thing to ask, were the right coils in the kit? Check PN's and look on their site.

So I've got all my coil springs swapped out (thanks Gerry), I have approx 5" lift all the way around now, with a nose down rake.
Currie sent me a 1" taller version option springs for the rear, and shorter softer 2 door springs for the front.
I also put a 3/4 Daystar budget boost spacer in the rear.
Next, gears, truss.
Then buy rims, tires (which I already have).
Then install my fenders, which I also already have.
